Florida has been lucky in recent years when it comes to hurricanes, as none have hit the state since 2005.
With this luck, however, can come complacency from both long-time residents and especially newcomers. However, this sort of “out of sight, out of mind” mentality can be dangerous; it is imperative that Florida residents always have a plan should disaster strike.
Florida’s Recent Luck with Hurricanes
Eight hurricanes affected Florida in a mere two-year span from 2004 to 2005. But since Wilma hit South Florida in October of 2005, none have struck the state. Because it has been so long, many people have let their guard down. Even when a hurricane doesn’t hit, however, even tropical storms can cause substantial damage, including flooding and tornadoes.
There are far too many people living in Florida who have no plan whatsoever should a hurricane threaten. Those who have been through storms in the past are all too familiar with the consequences of not being prepared; many of them had to stay in shelters. Far too many had to leave their beloved pets behind because, again, they failed to plan for a disaster.
The time is now to chart a course of action should the time come that a storm threatens your doorstep. You don’t want to wait until the last minute to figure out what to do.
